Thanks for the suggestion though. I just need to get them separated and they'll be OK on my aluminum defrosting plate.
Hmmm, maybe if I tried banging them on the counter....
sorry I actually never did it, but thought that I heard others say that it works well.
I will tell you this though, my sister told me to put anything that needs to be defrosted on an aluminum pan, it will defrost faster (brother-in-law is a metallurgist(sp?)
I do it all the time, it does indeed work!

Yes, Suzi. They were in a vacuum sealed bag from Omaha Steaks. I didn't notice anything but blood when I opened the seal up.
I was wondering if maybe I should have just submerged the whole thing in a bowl. Maybe between the water and the aluminum plate it defrosted too quickly?

They do. I use one of those black plates they used to advertise on TV. My mother bought me one years ago. I use it now more than I did the previous twenty years Others on this site said a heavy pan will work, too.

I made a sort of fried rice using cooked chicken, chorizo, carrots, peas, cooked rice, chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic and pesto. It tasted great.

so many of these meals sound so good to me that there are too many to showcase with quotes.


Pacanis, Sattie never got the recipe either.
Must have fallen in between the cracks, it's okay.
Just found that odd.
And for me, it's the 100+ year old black very black cast iron skillet for defrosting...

We are having this... Garlic Beef And Green Bean Stir Fry courtsey of Ol-blue

The beef is marinating and the rice is cooking as type this.

Update:

Here is how it turned out. I had some mushrooms that I quartered and tossed in and then topped it with toasted sesame seeds.
